Discovered HubNut recently. ‘Celebrating the average’.

Some good, some average, but most very watchable.

I now want a Rover 45 V6 :lol:

I've watched a few of his vids, hadn't seen this one. I think he strikes a good balance of interest in the subject without being a fanatic on a rush. I didn't know he'd driven a mk1 Insight, will have to find that.

I was disappoint with the XL1 economy even allowing for a low battery. I'd've thought a previous model Polo Bluemotion or Fiesta econetic would do similar in the same conditions, or at least close enough to be acceptable for the extra practicality they have. I'm trying not to sound all fanboi, but I can't not mention the A2 3L.

The craziest part is that pretty much anyone could jump into the 720S and do that.

I bet I couldn't get the bike to go that quick :lol:.

Well they have launch control - but you need to be brave enough to use it! :D

Of course the Youtube illiterati are up in arms over that vid, saying the rider was an amateur and had only ridden mopeds before and the bike should do the standing 1/4 in one second and and and AND AND AND AND AND.

Personally I'm just pleased each vehicle in that clip exists in the first place. They're all utterly daft.

Aye I was meaning that a 6' 5" 17 stone airbrake on the back of it would probably blunt acceleration a little though :lol:.

The bike V car bit was obviously bonkers, but the Atom V Mclaren was just as crazy to me, I’ve driven an Atom so know how quick they are (and how massively compromised they are as a “car” to be that quick). The idea of a relatively luxurious road car beating it by such a margin is just mad.

You should try it, it's not as scary as you might think.

Harris keeps banging on about how utterly ridiculously fast the 720 is. Probably the fastest supercar around at the moment, before you get into the 'hyper' car territory.

Aye he said that the 720 is so good that it makes the Senna look a bit stupid in comparison iirc.

A lot of people saying there are big build quality problems with them though.

This. That bike is rapid as F. The car is just mental. Loving that both exist.

My old Suzuki was LOL fast, the BMW is another step further, so I can only imagine how daft that Macca is. :lol:

Good vid that 8-)

So the 720S hits the 1/4 mile at 144mph in 10.2s. That's a tenth quicker than the Evora takes to hit 100mph. Would like a shot please. :)
